7th February 2022

Exciting plans have been teased for the future of the iconic Garrick Theatre in Southport.

The building has recently been bought by a group of theatre and business professionals, who say they are determined to restore the Garrick back to its former glory.

A full announcement on the group’s plans for the building will be revealed in the coming weeks, says new co-owner Niki Anderson

The reveal of the Garrick’s new ownership comes as the building has been placed on the ‘Theatres At Risk’ list by the Theatres Trust.

Niki said: “We cannot wait to reveal our full plans for the Garrick Theatre building and we are working very closely with partners to bring these plans to life.

“The Garrick is an iconic venue and while the building does need a lot of work, we are doing everything to ensure it’s heritage and Grade Listed Status is preserved.

“Keep your eyes peeled for further updates in the coming weeks when we’ll be revealing our huge plans for how the building will operate.

“But rest assured a theatre and performance space will be at the heart of our plans. The Garrick will live on for years to come.”
